"With fifteen years of experience as an educator and adolescent therapist, and over six years as an editor on Wyzant's platform, with Uncommon Apps, and Sentia Education, I can promise to help your teen tackle every step of their college application and personal statement with confidence and creativity.

Over the years, I've taught and mentored hundreds of students across the US and abroad. This includes working as a 10th grade English teacher, chess coach, curriculum developer, writing mentor, clinical social worker, social science researcher, wilderness guide, summer camp director, and even professional storyteller.

As I hope you see in my Student Feedback section - I love teaching and aim to put my students first. The majority of the teens I've worked with have been accepted into their first choice, including Harvard, Yale, Columbia, U Chicago, NYU, Stanford, Cornell, and dozens of other schools.

COLLEGE APPLICATION SERVICES

It's always a rewarding experience to guide high school students as they take a new look at their own stories and figure out how to, in a sense, pitch themselves to colleges. The following steps are potential ways we might work together

---Starting with a 2-3 hour phone call, I review their interests, goals, and academic and family background in order to outline the perfect personal statement - usually their central Common App Essay.

---I then assist students on early drafts as they figure out which parts to keep, ditch, or expand.

---We then polish each word so that the entire essay expresses a crisp story that clearly evokes their unique message to admission.

---Lastly, we repeat this process again for any supplemental essays that their schools request.

I also specialize in helping edit high school and college level social science and humanities essays, which includes

---studying challenging material,

---brainstorming for an essay,

---strengthening arguments, or

---proofreading.
